    He posted in n54 tech that there were still issues with the turbo and it's making noise. FFTEC is still trying to figure it out cause precision said the turbo is good. So we'll see what happens... I really hope its ready for NFZ.

    Looks like most of your tuning will have to been done on the dyno over the next couple of days cause the rain is really settling in.

    If your heading over to Specialty Z tomorrow hit me up as I'll be right around the corner and would love to see some BMS ST action.

    I was originally looking at Precision, but after a bunch of research and talking with a lot of reputable people in the industry no way will I be buying Precision....they switched over from Garrett based parts to chinese made parts. Their designs are not original, but do work, and no doubt they make power, but they are not high quality and do not last. Terry will see smoke and small oil leakage pretty much immediately, hopefully that's it though, main issue is seals and oil leaks with Precision's unless you go journal bearing there seems to be much larger issues. This is pretty well known though..just google Precision issues compared to googling Garrett or Turbonetics issues...the results aren't even close...

    I've been saying this forever. People buy precision turbos because they are cheap. That's really the only reason I can see. After owning 2 Forced Performance HTA turbos and a Garrett DBB 35r I will never own anything else except a FP, Garrett or Borg Warner. The FP HTA turbos I had were leaps and bounds better than any other turbo I had ever seen, owned, spool up, anything. It still baffles me by how popular Precision turbos are.

    Why does it baffle you? You explained it perfectly in your second sentence. They are cheap. 1 in 10 people will buy a more expensive product even if they know its better. It almost always boils down to money. Some people $#@! about the stage 3 kit and its price, for what you are getting it a downright steal. TWO genuine Garrett GTX turbos, not too mention everything else. Once we get into production the price is honestly prob going to go up, for all the work it is to make that kit, we are pulling peanuts out of it.

    Valid points. I personally prefer Garrett. But I back that up with absolutely nothing as I'm not a turbo hardware guy. Click here to enlarge At the end of the day FFTEC will give you whatever turbo you want to use. I liked the specs and price on the precision 6466 so gave it a whirl. If it doesn't hold up I'll swap it out for something else. I've heard they are holding up well though.

    please correct me if I am wrong, but isn't BW being produced in China now-a-days?
    Also, i know of quite a few EFRs that didn't even last 6 months on non-limit-pushing tunes.

    Garrett is still the safest bet.

    This could be true as of lately. I haven't purchased a BW in a few years. When I was deep in my S14 days That's all I would run. Never had one fail. Could be a different story now days as the only ones I've run lately are Forced Performance (Garrett Housings) and Garrett turbos.

    I'm not sure why you got neg repped. I tried to pos rep you but seems I do it too often. Tony is only speaking the truth here. There is a reason Garrett GTX and Forced Performance HTA turbos cost almost double what a precision turbo costs. It's a better turbo, period. If you guys know nothing about precision turbos, I suggest you do some reading and learn a little bit about turbos. I've been putting turbos on cars for almost 20 years. I saw precision start knocking off Garrett turbos back in the day and saw many fail after 1000 miles. Yes, their quality has improved as of lately but you DO GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR. Just saying. Go price 2xGTX turbos on the open market and then come back and tell me that the VT3 kit is over priced. People not being able to afford it or not seeing putting $10K into a $19k car is one thing, but the kit is not overpriced. At all.

    Back OT here though, regardless of my opinion of precision turbos, I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE THIS CAR HAUL ASS! Good luck Terry. I know, I for one, am glued to this thread awaiting some serious results from a BMS tuned ST N54.

    Yeah, I mean I doubt it will blow up on you anytime soon, but Forced Performance, Garrett directly, Turbonetics, and BW are all great choices. I know supernatural is really good too, and exile, but they are more toward the big power only crowd. Forced Performance offers a good amount of turbos that fill the gap between the lower powered Garrett GTX and High Power GTX, since Garrett doesn't offer much between say a 62mm and 77mm. I'll personally be using either FP or Turbonetics, just going to depend on lead time at this point since car is already in the shop....I have confidence in both though

    I've heard of this as well, but only on really high PSI setups which BW themselves don't recommend, their HP ratings are on the lower end as they are built to last, not push crazy power levels.

    ^Fftec lets you pick any turbo you want like me I went with a comp turbo.

    Precision turbos are just the best bang for the money. They have become the standard in the industry

    Unfortunately I must spread reputation so no rep for you right now, but I think people need to understand that GTX turbos start at ~$1700 and go up, most kits it looks like you have pre-sold are using turbos that as a pair cost probably close to $4k.

    Sorry for OT @Terry@BMS can't wait to see your numbers, only wanted to bring that up on Precision in case you weren't aware for your own protection.

    I'd love to see an HTA3586r on an N54. To me one of the best turbos made right now. Spools SO FAST for an 800HP turbo.

I know supernatural is really good too, and exile, but they are more toward the big power only crowd. Forced Performance offers a good amount of turbos that fill the gap between the lower powered Garrett GTX and High Power GTX, since Garrett doesn't offer much between say a 62mm and 77mm. I'll personally be using either FP or Turbonetics, just going to depend on lead time at this point since car is already in the shop....I have confidence in both though
